About the programme

The Digital Europe Programme provides funding for projects in five crucial areas:

  • supercomputing
  • artificial intelligence
  • cybersecurity
  • advanced digital skills
  • ensuring the wide use of digital technologies across the economy and society

The programme is designed to bridge the gap between digital technology research and market deployment. It will benefit Europe's citizens and businesses, especially SMEs. Investment under the Digital Europe Programme supports the European Union’s twin objectives of a green transition and digital transformation while strengthening the Union’s resilience and digital sovereignty.
